The Christmas lights are up and on and Chesterfield’s high street is ready to welcome back shoppers following the government’s go-ahead.
Vicar Lane, the grounds of the Crooked Spire Church, Burlington Street and the Market Place are ablaze with Christmas lights in the town centre.
Thanks to the magic of technology, Santa has also been brought to Chesterfield and will be meeting children virtually.
The Amazing Magical Chesterfield Santa House in Chesterfield town centre will open its doors on Saturday 5 December giving visitors the opportunity to have a chat with Santa via video link to the North Pole.
There’s more fun for children and families in the town centre with the Chesterfield Elf Trail. Elves have been located across the town centre bearing QR codes that reveal Christmas gift guides and discounts for businesses in the town centre.
People are invited to have fun and follow the clues on the website to locate the elves which are located in the windows of town centre shops.
The Elf Trail and the Amazing Magical Christmas Santa House are just two of the initiatives launched to help town centre businesses during the pandemic.
For restaurants, bars and cafes not yet able to re-open because of tier 3 restrictions, marketing organisation Destination Chesterfield has created a dedicated page on its website packed with details of businesses that are continuing to operate by adapting their services to meet the needs of the community.
The initiative was originally launched during the first lockdown and proved a huge success.
Dom Stevens, Destination Chesterfield Manager commented: “The mission for Destination Chesterfield has always been to encourage as many people as possible to support the town. Our website, during the pandemic and the uncertainty that comes with it, is playing a key role in helping us continue to remind people to support the town and its businesses.”
Details of food and drink businesses operating delivery and takeaway services can be found here.
Supporting the high street has been top of Chesterfield’s agenda during the pandemic. Retailers and food and drink businesses have been supported both financially and practically by Chesterfield Borough Council and Destination Chesterfield ensuring the town recovers from the pandemic quickly and sustainably.
